Uh, this is not an expensive grinder. Whether it's worth the money is a different story.

Think I'd rather buy a Specialita/Silenzio and 3D print mods to turn them into single dosers. Cool design tho!

Genuinely curious as I'd like to jump on a burr grinder one day, but what would make this $1000 unit substantially better than a $150-$200 unit like the OXO, Baratza, etc?

Note that you will be charged both a VAT as well as Canadian taxes for this order, so you'll be double taxed.

This guy is one of the biggest names in the coffee game. See what he has to say about it.

It would depend on how you brew... I believe this grinder (and many other $500+ grinders) is geared toward making espressos, as it can grind coffee fine enough for espresso. These high end grinders are overkill for any other brewing methods that don't require as fine of a grind.

The ability to dial in espresso grind is much improved with better machines with finer/stepless adjustments. So yes. But do you drink straight espresso or lattes? If it's lattes, you might not notice a whole lot. But if you're experimenting with different lighter roast straight espresso, you definitely would.

Better grinders will give you much better control & better consistency. The Niche is also designed for zero retention, so the single dose worth of the beans you put in the small hopper will pretty much all make it into the portafilter or dosing cup. Grind some beans with a Baratza Encore or Smart Grinder Pro, knock the sides and you'll see how much is still in the chute to make it into tomorrow's coffee :P

Thank you both, I'm definitely an amateur when it comes to brewing my own coffee (despite how much I tend to consume). I use a cheap $20 Krups grinder to mash up my $10 bag of Zavida beans from Costco to use in my $100 Cuisinart coffee maker. I would like to bolster my setup a bit, once my coffeemaker bites the dust I'll look at upgrading to something a bit more substantial (a Moccomaster, perhaps?) and get a nice grinder to boot.

"DOULBE TAX and VAT"

this. this is the only thing preventing me from buying one of these.
Note. This brand and model would unlikely go on sale, as the demand is too high.

Exactly. This is on the low to medium spectrum for grinders. Not even remotely expensive.

For drip- I think you'll notice a decent upgrade by getting a decent grinder (say like a baratza encore) and then better beans to try. Not as much with a coffee maker.



I think the cheapest upgrade is a scale. Having consistence on coffee-to-water ratio is massive. Grinding is probably next.

Has Mazzer burrs, so I think it is worth the premium. I wish the bean hopper was larger.

I have one of these. Great grinder... but where's the deal?

Also bear in mind you could get charged duty as well... so looking at potentially $1200 all-in.

Eureka Oro just released a single dose grinder that is cheaper than the Niche. It's currently up for pre-order on idrinkcoffee with expected shipment in Nov.
